FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn.-- Aquarion Water Company advises Fairfield County residents and business owners to refuse water workers into their homes or businesses unless they have a scheduled appointment and see company-issued photo identification.
Indoor utility work is only being completed by scheduled appointment.
The warning was issued after an elderly Greenwich woman was nearly a victim of a distraction robbery by a fake worker.
“Aquarion Water Company employees follow strict protocols when entering customers’ homes and businesses, which include showing the customer an Aquarion photo ID,” said Charles V. Firlotte, Aquarion President and CEO.
“We also encourage customers to call our Customer Service Department prior to allowing entry.”
Anyone who has further questions or would like to confirm a scheduled appointment may contact Aquarion Customer Service at (203) 445-7310.
Customers outside the Greater Bridgeport area can call (800) 732-9678.
